Question about 2008 Ford F 450 Super Duty
HOW DO I TURN OFF THE IDLE TIMER ON MY 2008 F550 WITH A POWER STROKE.
We asked Ford Tech hotline about this for one of our customers and they told us no.
But here are the specs for it.You can prolong it by not setting park brake or if you press the brake or accel during the final 30 secs. before shutdown.
Engine shutdown occurs under the following conditions:
• Vehicle speed below 1.6 km/h (1 MPH)
• Engine coolant temperature is greater than 15 °C (60 °F)
• Transmission in the PARK or NEUTRAL position
• Engine shutdown occurs in 5 minutes with the parking brake applied
• Engine shutdown occurs in 15 minutes without the parking brake applied
• The engine shutdown time may be increased in regeneration mode or scan tool mode (60
• Brake or accelerator pedal application in the 30 second window resets the engine shutdown
• Power take off (PTO)/auxiliary idle control system not active
